Hrithik Roshan Box Office Analysis: Hits, Flops, Blockbusters

Hrithik Roshan made his debut in Kaho Naa.. Pyaar Hai more than 14 years ago in the year 2000. He took the industry and the nation by storm in what will be remembered as the biggest debut for an actor in the history of Indian Cinema. He followed it up with Fiza and Mission Kashmir, the latter released alongside a big film like Mohabbatein and managed to beat it on its opening day.

It was all downhill since then, but the superstar made a strong comeback with Koi Mil Gaya in 2003. Since then, he hasn’t looked back.

The fact that Rakesh Roshan has given Hrithik three of the biggest hits of his career, has resulted in a section of the media (including fans on social media) labelling him as an actor who clicks only in films directed by his father. But with just 18 films in his 14 year old career, Hrithik has a fantastic record even in films that have not been directed by his father.

Hrithik Roshan in Koi Mil Gaya

Out of the 14 films that were not directed or produced by Rakesh Roshan, 5 were hit or better and 2 were average grossers. Since 2003 after the release of Koi Mil Gaya, out of 7 non-Filmkraft films, 4 films have achieved hit (or better) status.

As his fans and the general public await the release of his 20th film Bang Bang, we analyse the career of the actor:

A few interesting points

  • Since 2003, Hrithik’s success ratio is the third best after Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan.
  • Most of his films that are mass-friendly go on to be huge blockbusters. Out of his 9 films that have worked, 3 were super hits, 4 blockbusters and one all time blockbuster. A historical film like Jodhaa Akbar is his only ‘hit’.
  • Kaho Na Pyaar Hai, Koi Mil Gaya and Dhoom 2 were the highest grossers in 2000, 2003 and 2006 respectively. Since 2000, he shares the second-best record for the year’s highest grosser with Aamir Khan (Ghajini, 3 Idiots, Dhoom 3) and Shahrukh Khan (Devdas, Veer Zaara, Om Shanti Om). Only Salman Khan has a better record – No Entry (extended special appearance), Dabangg, Bodyguard and Ek Tha Tiger were all highest grossers of the year.
  • The combined force of Hrithik, Salman, SRK and Aamir have the year’s highest grosser for every year since 2000, with 2001 being the only exception when Gadar – Ek Prem Katha released in theatres. Only Hrithik has been able to compete with the Khans and match them at the domestic box office.

  • The man can act, he is one hell of a dancer, and OH GOD so easy on the eyes because he is simply beautiful to look at, none of those things where handed to him, he has worked hard to act, to dance and to look amazing. Yes he may have had some assistance being in a family in the industry BUT the cretid is his for taking the oportunity and running with it , taking it to a higher level. India should be very proud of her actors, in particular H Roshan who has proven he can be very versatile and take on almost any character and do it with real dedication and talent. I wish him the best, and hope to see many more of his work. I am a fan and hope he takes on even more challeging and out of the box roles to play.
